Gliese 581 G : New Planet Discovered 2010 – A planet was recently found that scientists confirm could potentially sustain life, and has many of the right conditions needed to do so. The planet is called Gliese 581g, and is about 20 light-years away from Earth. The planet is located in the “Goldilock’s zone” of it’s star, a location that allows for surface temperatures to remain in the right zone to harbor liquid water. Scientists are also saying that the planet could potentially have an atmosphere.

The scientists are from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and have been studying the planet’s parent star, Gliese 581, for 11 years. The scientists have also discovered numerous planets orbiting the star, of which Gliese 581g is one. So far the scientists have found that there are six planets orbiting the star.

Steven Vogt is an astronomer at UCSC, and he said about the discovery, “Our findings offer a very compelling case for a potentially habitable planet. The fact that we were able to detect this planet so quickly and so nearby tells us that planets like this must be really common.”

The average surface temperature of the planet is estimated to range between 12C and -31C.

  1. dat’s really unbelievable dat they discovered a new planet!!! Can humans live there? i know not now but maybe later on in the future if they do more scientific research and gather more information. maybe it will save the earth from being overpopulated so dat some people can live there one day.

          • Yeah…maybe they have a different bible for every planet…because there are no references to other planets’ life in the current versions I’ve seen. We need to get in touch with ourselves, planet, and other people. We are all connected more than most people will ever realize. All of life’s questions cannot be answered by one book…who conduct’s research using one source?…a terrible researcher that’s who. All religion is base on early pegan beliefs. Look at the relationships between the equinoxes (not sure about spelling). Also check out this 3-part video.

          • right now is easy for you 2 say that because aparently you dont know nothing about God, i know is hard 2 belive but he created this universe that new planet that was just discovered, he created life in this planet, he created you. there is good and thats God and there is bad and thats the devil because by the way he exists too and tha devil has a plan, to make people confused and to make us think like you that, that God is a lie. We me and you were created with a purpose here on earth and with the gift to live an eternity, it is totally up to us to choose an eternity with God or an eternity with the devil. if you read the bible you would find that is hard for men (non belivers) to think like this and thats because God is mighty and goes against our logic. and He knows that, therefore He sent His only son Jesus Christ to die for us 2 pay for our sins because is those sins that we make that keep us separated from the creator. Jesus came 2 save us by dying 4 us, belive that and u ll be saved (faith).

          • why do you think God is fake? When the bible is the most supported and vouched for document of the past. The galaxy is set up for life to live and survive on earth if you changed one little thing we wouldnt be here. Yea i bet that happened by chance…and how complex our body is and just everything around us, how could that all happen by chance?

  3. A little on the cold side but nothing a little green-house gas couldn’t cure. When do we do move? Oh I guess we still have some work on this planet before invasion day is necessary.

  4. I Think that the fact that scientists have discovered a possible life containing planet. If someday i get the chance to go there, I swear that would be SO COOL!

    P.S. I’d take the entire US army with me!

    • *cough* id take the marines *cough* 😉 ya know how it goes sci-fi movies its always the marines who kick the alien a$$ lol, either way i find this very intersting

  5. With the rate for which this world is going. Overpopulation, melting polar caps, smog, industry will be more recurring as time progresses. Finding this now can plan for a great new begginning, especially for those 2012 believers… Time is simply of the essence now and always. Science is always best guess, so lets hope this isn’t one of those ocassions…If true, great find!

    • i was thinking the same thing(2012). except that it was also said that with todays technology, just sending a device out there for information purposes only would take about 200years there and 200years back. 2012 or not, we’re all dead either way. face it we’ll never live to know anything else about this planet.that sucks

  6. While I’m reasonable sure this specific planet will not be the Big Kahuna with a habitable atmosphere and all that jazz, but sooner or later (within 20 years, even!) I believe we will find that one planet that is suitable for humans.

  7. It’s too far, we’ll never make it with our current technology.

    What about new bacteria, new viruses, or other such things which could be potentially harmful to humans?
    How about the things we bring? Could we contaminate the planet?

    If we could travel there in the near future, who would get to go? The military? Scientists? Survivalists? All of the above?

    Do we all get to go or just the select few who meet a certain genetic profile?

    • exactly, not only that how much of our current tech would even be usable? sure we manage to get there somehow, then what? start over with humanity? its not like we get there then poof everything is ready to go. its a cool discovery but thats all it is, nothing will happen with this particular planet

  8. this world does not rotate like the earth. the time of day is as constant as your location. on one half prepetual day, on the other prepetual night. this will opeon a new chapter in genetics evolution and adaptation not only in human knowledge but in human evolution we now know that there is a set of hospitable planets with living conditions completely unlike earth. imagine humans adapting to complete nocturnality, never seeing light. or imagine the stamina of those who live in nothing but scorching heat, and constant environments at every level between the two this is a tremendous discovery that we must prepare ourselves to recive because we cannot reap the benifits yet we must progress in knowlede and technological advancements before thisis in our grasp but there is know a distinct glimmer of hope on the horizion and i am truely exited to think where humans can take ourselves in location body and mind

  9. oh, God .. Really there is another planet ???
    but, do you think if we want to go there the other people or creatures in that planet think that we are come from a space with flying dishes … NASA if you decide to discover the planet closely take me with you am so Good in peace things XD

  10. I wonder how long it would take to get there. In any case half one side is dark/freezing cold and the other boiling hot. Humans could not live there. Bacteria might be able to. I read that it would take two hundred years just to get some images back from it if we sent a probe. Fascinating, this proves that there are thousandths if not not millions of earth like planets. The sky is literally the limit. Too bad our technology is so prehistoric.

  11. I think we are all missing the point here,…… This could possibly mean that there is life on other planets besides our own. Isn’t dat coo!!! hahahahahahaha

  12. seriously you ask if they have a god? what an idiot did you even read your stupid bible you moron god created the heavens and the earth duh where the hell do you think the heavens are ? lol if we have a god he created EVERYTHING even the other planets and the little green men who may live there DUH !!!!!

    • why is exploration something bad ?? its good thing when human try to discover other worlds are not you agree with me ??? and by the way Obama is a symbol in us he cannot stop any thing pal 🙂

      • no exploration is not bad for the human race, but it is bad for obama’s budget. he prefers to spend funding on his muslim family to build a mosque at ground zero so they pray together.

  13. dem mo fugin alens bst not be messin wit my cupcakes nigga shit man we should all go there and party b tear it all up i got a 4 whller u knw i like that planet better anyway iyts bigger KNW wam sayin nigga alens give me a baby alens all in my spinals ohhh im goin gleez159 whoooo

  14. Just another planet for the world to rape and pilage! We are not happy to destroy one planet? Hell why not go do the same to another planet! NOT!

  15. oh god i wish i could create the expected speed for reaching there!!! a planet where people can live!!whoa!! great..im waiting for a space ship …oh 2012 is near!!!

  16. its true there are planets which are habitable because that place was not conquered by satan when he rebelled against God but they are no human being exist there. all places he satan conquered was destroyed by God.that way no life in the solar system.the important thing is do you have the eternal life after you die. what faith can save you. i will answer that question. it is God Faith not us after hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Death burial, resurrection, and assendtion. Cor 15 1,4,6..you must be indentified by faith as what Paul said in Gal,2,20. I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I lived but not I(his new creation) but Christ lived in me. Paul know that his old nature the sinner one, by faith is already died,buried thru the gospel,but Christ resurrected Paul know that we has resurrected by faith and he was ascended in heaven and Christ is her life here on earth. The holy spirit to Paul prophesy that we shall not all die, 2nd Thess 4,16,17 this for the last day Church, Christ will soon prior to peace treaty signing in middle east rapture first then 7 year tribulation. you will be raptured those who person you are indetified to the gospel of Jesus Christ by faith.I cannot espect that this message wlll be easy to understand only by grace of God. This message will be only a testimony to all when rapture happens see you in the air. God bless.

  18. GOD IS EVERYTHING BUT SOME PEOPLE INTERPET IT AS “THE UNIVERSE” SO IF YOU BELIEVE IN EXSITENCE OF EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE THATS GOD

  19. *sigh*dude realy…the picture i gleise and the sun looks the same as the picture as my weekly reader.PS…im only go to northside
    pluss im only in 4th grade also

  20. A time travel machine would do nothing. We need a new type of fuel, that burns much hotter, and more powerful. The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second. It would take about 20 years traveling at that speed to travel the length of 120 trillion miles. 20 light years. With our ships today while in space, we travel at about 23,000 miles per hour. That is a major factor. We would not have the oxygen, enough food, and the human life for that. They would have to reproduce on the ship. And be trained to know what to do when they get there. Impossible right now.
